Dryden's Cloverbelt Local Food Co-op has been given a 2016 Premier's Award for Agri-Food Innovation Excellence.

The award recognizes contributions to boosting economic growth in Ontario by creating new products that help to support job creation, add value to existing products and support a sustainable environment.

Cloverbelt, who also won the award in 2014, was launched in 2013 to help bring food straight from the farm to the consumer. More than 100 producers of goods have since sold products through the food coperative.

“I congratulate this year’s winners of the Premier’s Award for Agri-Food Innovation Excellence,” said Jeff Leal, minister of agriculture, food and rural affairs in a press release. “Their commitment to creative ideas strengthens Ontario’s world-class agri-food sector and positions our province for continued economic growth.”

My Pride Farm out of Thunder Bay also received the award.

Ontario’s agri-food sector supports more than 790,000 jobs and contributes more than $36.4 billion towards its gross domestic product, according to the province.
